Additional Problem Set. Chapters 10-11. Conceptual Questions. 1. The molecule below is expected to be a poor hydroboration reagent of double bonds. Explain why by discussing the most important frontier orbital interactions in the transition state. O B O H 2. In the mechanism of oxidation of trialkylboranes we showed a rearrangement raction where OH was a leaving group. Write out the mechanism for triethylborane oxidation by H 2 O 2 in base and explain why OH - can be a leaving group. 3. Alkyne π -bonds are less reactive (that is more stable) than alkene π -bonds. Explain why.
